Bug#378753: tetex-bin: texshow sometimes segfaults

found 348513 804.027-5

Dear Perl-TK maintainer,

while investigating a segfault with an other perl-tk script in
tetex-bin, we found that this old bug has not been fixed, or rather
unfixed again:

Yes, same here - a sid chroot on a sarge i386 box with linux 2.6.16 from

frank@sid:~$ cat segfaultTK 
use Tk;
my $main = new MainWindow;
my $cmdframe = $main->Frame;
my $b = $cmdframe->Button(-font => undef);
frank@sid:~$ ./segfaultTK 
Segmentation fault
